Call for teacher voices about tools you've used!

Hey everyone-

My publisher, Maupin House, had a great idea- to include classroom teacher voices in my upcoming book, telling about how teachers out there have used the tools that I included in the text. All we need is one or two paragraphs that tell us how you used one of the tools below with your students:

**Updated: The tools in red have had responses already- I still need input from the ones in black!!**

AnimotoBlogsMS Photostory
Collaborative WhiteboardsePalsGlogster
Google DocsGoogle EarthGoogle Forms
Online Pic Editor (Picnik, Fotoflexer, Lunapic, etc.)UStreamMessage Boards
Mind Mapping (Webspiration, Gliffy,
PreziSchooltubeScreen casting (Jing, Camtasia, etc.)
Second LifeSlideshareSpore Creature Creator
Timeline creator (Timetoast, XTimeline, Timerime, etc.)TodaysMeetTwitter


When writing, if you would include not only the nuts and bolts of the project but also the impact this use had on your students and how it affected them. Be yourself and keep it conversational!

If you would like to contribute your information and how you've used one of these tools and the impact it's had, I've created a Google Form for you to submit: CLICK HERE

The publisher, editor, and I will look over submissions and I will email you to let you know if yours has been selected or not. If yours is published, your name and your school's name will be included and you will receive a free copy of the book when it comes out (target is this summer).

If those of you that work as tech facilitators could forward this link to those in your staff that you know have done great things with these tools, it would be much appreciated!!

Thanks again for your help!
